&ldquoAs Alsop faced the cellos and drew from them the most tremendously shaped phrases with every inflection of her baton, you were aware of being in the presence of greatness.&rdquo

Marin Alsop makes Viennese debut with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra

Vienna Symphony Orchestra

Marin Alsop makes her Viennese debut with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra at the Musikverein on October 14. Her ‘From the New World’ programme begins with Barber’s Essay No.2 and culminates in Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony.

As part of her Dvořák cycle with her own Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Alsop’s recording of this symphony received outstanding critical praise: “It is rare to be able to say that a performance forces one to listen to a work anew, but this is exactly what Alsop’s reading achieves” (BBC Music Magazine, Disc of the Month, July 2008).
